‘Nine Mile Point’ was a song writing collaboration between myself and the amazingly talented Rachel Caldy. It’s interesting to remember the technology involved. This was really before the days of computers being able to handle multiple audio streams. The studio at that point was running ADATS synced via SPMTE to an ATARI computer. Finally mastered to DAT. How things have changed! Musicians and instruments for ‘Nine Mile Point’ were Rachel Cardy (voice and all backing vocals), Simon Gibbs (all guitars + awesome solo at the end of ‘Mission Possible’, myself (bass guitar, all keys/synths, flute and drum programming)
Here are some original tracks from my studio band ELEKTRA.
All of these charts were composed and recorded by myself with the exception of ‘Leather Katz’ and ‘Cleo’ written by Simon Gibbs, during the late 90’s.
Musicians were Simon Gibbs (guitars) on all tracks except ‘Alien in New York’ and ‘The Level’ (Ray Ennis),Paul Hornsby ( Tenor sax, Flute, All Keys, Bass Guitar and drum programming), Gethin Liddington (Trumpet)
I recorded Nathan as a result of hearing him play in a local comp’s music practice room. The recordings here have no overdubs and were all finished in one complete take when he was 16 years of age.. He is for the most part self taught and has achieved an incredible technique. He has gone on to tour the UK and abroad with his idol Tommy Emmanuel.
